Winter garden magic
California had the most amazing splash of sunshine last weekend. It was bliss. And as I type this I do feel bad for my friends and family who live most anywhere else in the States at the moment. I do realize we are blessed and spoiled and soft. The unseasonal warmth has me dreaming of sunflowers and fresh herbs and basically anything garden-y. It’s a bit premature to dig in my yard as I’m quite sure we are not past the last frost, so instead we paid a family visit to Hakone Gardens, one of my favorite scenic spots.
Almost nothing was in bloom and the Koi were not eating (apparently they fast through the winter?) but streams of sunshine danced throughout the garden, making for a truly inspired Sunday morning. Anyone else plotting their plans for Spring? Mine involve a planter box overflowing with herbs and another filled with wildflowers. I’ll keep you posted if you promise to share with me, too.
